You know that thing everybody does on Twitter where they screenshot some highlighted text to get around the 140 character limit? You know, like this?

Up until now you had to highlight the text you wanted, take a screenshot, go find the screenshot, and finally attach it to the tweet. Whew! Hope you still remember what you wanted to tweet in the first place.

Now there’s no need for all that rigmarole. Just highlight any sentence on Medium and click the tweet button. We’ll build you a pretty screenshot and pop open a tweet box in which you can insert your witty observation. Give it a try!
